Subtractive and additive synthesizer

Zebra is a synthesizer plug-in which combines subtractive and additive synthesis with a powerful modulation engine that even smoothly integrates with the built-in effects section.
MacOS X 10.5 or newer
Windows XP/Vista/7
Zebra Zebra v 2.7.2 Oct 10, 2015 MacOS X Intel
UI improvements:
- All plugin UIs now have 10% scaling, from 70% to 200%.
- The ACE UI is now clearer and has new modulation sources.
- Diva UI was also improved for increased clarity.
- The Zebra2 "Unempty Dark Horse" skin is now complete.
- And finally, a number of small graphics issues in various plugins are fixed.
Configuration Menu: Bazille, Zebra2, Hive, Diva, ACE and Podolski now have a configuration menu (look for the cogwheel icon). This menu houses:
- MIDI learn: a visual overlay for assigning MIDI controls to the plugin interface.
- MIDI list table: editable list of assigned MIDI controls.
- Preferences: global settings for controls, appearance and audio.
Host/DAW issues:
- The "Missing UI" in Logic and Studio One is fixed.
- A number of small issues were fixed in Logic X, Studio One, Cubase, Reaper, Digital Performer, ProTools, Maschine and Kore.
Everything else: These updates include a heap of general improvements: fixed hanging and dropped notes, improved MIDI timing, new FX parameters and much more.

    This is a truly first class product. A lot of work has gone into the anti-aliasing of the oscillators and filters, and you can really tell by the smooth, clear sound. The included patches are great, user interface really lends itself to performance. I use it myself.
